(JustPatriots.com)- Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot seems to be fine with her city being destroyed by far-left extremists every week, as long as it’s not in her neighborhood. After months of ongoing political violence, looting, and rioting, Lightfoot has finally put her foot down and ordered police officers to protect her home and neighborhood.
Lightfoot issued the order last week to ban the so-called “peaceful protests” from her neighborhood after she claimed to have received threats. She has a “right to make sure that my home is secure,” she said.
What about everyone in the city, mayor?
According to WGN9, some six people have been arrested after Lightfoot made the changes. They were arrested for “misdemeanor residential picketing” which is nothing compared to the looting and violence going on in the rest of the city. But Mayor Lori Lightfoot can’t possibly let people peacefully protest outside of her home, could she?
None of the six people arrested were even residents of Chicago, weirdly. Three of them were from New York, one was from Seattle, another from Arkansas, and one more from Pennsylvania. According to local police, the protesters were initially given verbal warnings but when they were ignored, they were arrested.
Black Lives Matter protests in Chicago have gotten so bad that two weeks ago, local authorities were forced to raise bridges in the city to stop more people joining the protests in the early hours of a Monday morning. Public transport was also stopped to restrict peoples’ ability to move around the city. Chicago is well and truly troubled.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot, however, has not condemned the protesters. She has also attacked President Donald Trump for sending in federal officers to curtail the riots. So she seems to be perfectly happy with the rioters “peacefully protesting” as long as they aren’t doing it around the Logan Square block of the city, where she lives.
The Chicago Tribune reported how the directive surfaced in an email in July from the then-Shakespeare District Commander Melvin Roman.
“It did not distinguish between the peaceful protesters Lightfoot regularly says she supports and those who might intend to be destructive, but ordered that after a warning is given to demonstrators, ‘It should be locked down,’” the paper reported.
At what point will Mayor Lightfoot determine the violence and rioting bad enough to ban them from other people’s neighborhoods too?
